Pre-race routine:

Haven't done a straight running race in 2 years. It was kinda odd. Woke up, threw down some food and fired up the GPS to go find this place. Once parked I kinda milled around until it was time to warm up.
Event warmup:

Out and back for half a mile. I was pretty darned sweaty by the time I was done. Yay humidity in August.
  • 47m 7s
  • 6.21 miles
  • 07m 35s  min/mile

Went out pretty quick. Started out in the middle but towards the front and found myself in the area of the sponsored runners at the 3/4 mile mark. What the???? Looked down and I was running sub 6 min miles. Whoa there, dial it back a bit. Settled into a groove until mile 4 when a guy went head over keister about 10 feet in front of me. Slowed to check on him and could only get it back into a 8:30 pace. GRRRR. So frustrated that when I grabbed a cup of Gatorade and another of water I dumped the Gatorade on my head and drank the water. LOL. Good experience overall.
What would you do differently?:

Dial it back a bit at the beginning. May need to look at more tempo runs too. IDK. I'll leave that up to coach.

Warm down:

Quick quarter mile jog cool down and then walked through the vendor area.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Not much.
